High aspect rig and deep keel make the boat extremely sea-worthy and performance oriented. Great racer/cruiser

Pros:
Cons:

Well built, great sailing, boat. Fin keel, spade rudder, strong single spreader rig.
Primary weakness is stem fitting, subject to corrosion leading to fastener failure. Other weakness include leaking chainplates, leading to bulkhead rot; and poor port design, leading to leaks and cosmetic damage.
Strengths of the boat make it well worthwhile to correct the weaknesses!

Pros: Classic Plastic built by craftsmen who gave a damn.
Cons: Rare type in my area.

Not many Tartan 30's in Vancouver, BC. The upside of this is that their value is not well known, but the downside is that the PHRF rating is for San Fransisco Bay, where the wind blows like stink.
